No sewing

It’s been quiet on my blog in the past two weeks and I’ve been very absent on the internet in general. The reason is that I’ve lost a dear friend last week who I’ve known for 30 years . Not exactly the time to do a lot of sewing, let alone writing blog posts.  I just felt sad and still am not my old self.

But sewing will help me getting back in the normal routine and it’s always good to find something to do. So I might plan sewing 4 garments and join the mini wardrobe contest on Pattern review.

But first I’m sewing a denim jacket (I know I had other jacket plans before, but sometimes it just doesn’t happen the way you think it will). I’ve sewn the muslin and my sewing teacher helped me fitting it. I still have to draw the alterations to the pattern, but otherwise I’m ready to start.

It’s from the January 2007 Burda issue, no. 110. I’m morphing it however with no 112 from the June issue from 2004 for center front and collar.

On the German site there always were archives back till 2004, now I can’t find archives on the German site at all! The English site still has the archives, but only back till 2006. Does anyone know whether I’m just missing a link or have the archives really been removed?

I hope I can offer some comfort, despite the fact that I am a complete stranger on the internet... I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Losing a friend of 30 years is a great loss.

I am sorry for the loss of your friend.

As far as Burda is concerned: The German site is already on the new system and they have to put up all the pics for the archives again. (It is not compatible with the old one.)

Some years should already be back, but the work is still continuing. But the plan is to bring it all back. (My information is from the woman who is doing that job.)

How sad, of course you have not felt like doing anything! It is perfectly fine and normal. We all must take time to greive, especially at the loss of someone close.

Melissa said...

I'm sorry to hear you lost a dear friend. You should be greiving right now, that is normal and what you're supposed to do. A friendship of thirty years is a huge loss. (((HUGS)))

So sorry to hear of your loss. I have often found comfort in my sewing, singing or whatever artform I am doing at the time. Take your time, the internet and your blog, and your readers will be here when you're ready.

Gecondoleerd Sigrid, ik snap dat het dan heel raar voelt om de draad weer op te paken, maar goed dat je het doet! Sterkte

I'm so sorry for you. It is very hard. I lost a dear friend last January and found myself thinking of her often at the oddest times, in addition to always thinking of her in places that we spent a lot of time together. In that way, I think our friends stay with us. So, after the initial hurt and sadness lightens a bit, I think you'll still feel her presence in your life.
Take care, Marji

Mary Beth said...

So sorry, Sigrid, to hear of your loss. May the sewing fairies help distract you...

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.

I've been looking for the archives on the new German Burda site too...

Sue said...

Sorry to hear of your loss! Sewing is a comfort and will help you feel a little bit more 'normal'. Look after yourself!

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. Take all the time you need to feel like yourself again.

Lindsay T said...

That is sad news about your friend. I hope sewing helps to heal the hurt you must feel.

melissa said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Don't try to rush your feelings - you'll know when it feels right to come back to the things you love doing.

Sigrid, I am sorry for your loss.

Gecondoleerd. Vreselijk om vrienden uit je omgeving te verliezen. Ik kan me voorstellen dat je hoofd even niet stond naar het bijhouden van je blog. Wel leuk om je weer terug te zien. Ik ben een enthousiaste volger.

It's a great loss, my condolences. We suddenly lost a Flemish colleague of 30 years in the Dutch department last week.
